Zeus discovered later that Prometheus had secretly entered Olympus, with Athene’s guidance, and stolen a glowing coal from Hestia’s hearth, so that the mortals created by him could now cook their meat, instead of eating it raw.

Prometheus hid the coal in the pith of a huge fennel stalk, and carried it safely down to earth, still alight. To punish him for giving mortals this first start towards civilization, Zeus hit on a clever plan. He created a beautiful, foolish, disobedient woman whom he named Pandora, and sent her to Epimetheus as a present.

When Epimetheus wanted to marry Pandora, Prometheus warned him: This is a trick of Zeus’s. Be wise and send her back. So Epimetheus said to Hermes, who had brought Pandora: Please thank Zeus very much for his kindness, but tell him that I am unworthy of such a beautiful gift and must refuse it.

Angrier than ever, Zeus pretended that Prometheus had visited Heaven in an attempt to steal away Athene. He chained Prometheus to a rock in the Caucasus Mountains, where a vulture sat and gnawed at him all day.

Meanwhile Epimetheus, frightened by Prometheus’s punishment, married Pandora. One day Pandora found a sealed jar at the back of a cupboard.

It was the jar which Prometheus had asked Epimetheus to keep safely hidden and on no account to open. Though Epimetheus ordered Pandora to leave it alone, she broke the seal—as Zeus intended her to do. Out came a swarm of nasty winged things called Old Age, Sickness, Insanity, Spite, Passion, Vice, Plague, Famine, and so forth. These stung Pandora and Epimetheus most viciously, afterwards going on to attack Prometheus’s mortals ( who had until then lived happy, decent lives ) and spoil everything for them. However, a bright-winged creature called Hope flew out of the jar last of all, and kept mortals from killing themselves in utter despair.

    宙斯隨後發現,普羅米修司已經在雅典娜的指引下偷偷地進入了奧林帕斯山,並從海絲娣雅的爐灶裡偷走了一塊發光的煤炭,所以他所創造的人類現在已能夠烹煮食物,而不用再吃生食。

    普羅米修司把煤炭藏到一個巨大的茴香莖裡面,並安然地把它帶回人間,這時煤炭仍然發亮著。為了懲罰他讓人類踏出了邁向文明的第一步,宙斯想出了個聰明的計謀。他創造了一個美麗、愚昧又不聽話的女人,將她取名為潘朵拉,然後把她當作禮物送給了埃比米修司。當埃比米修司想要娶潘朵拉時,普羅米修司警告他︰這是宙斯的詭計,別上當,把她送回去。所以埃比米修司就對帶潘朵拉來的赫密士說︰請替我向宙斯說我很感謝他的好意,但我不配接受如此美麗的禮物,所以必須婉拒。

    在異常的憤怒下,宙斯佯稱普羅米修司先前之所以造訪天堂是為了把雅典娜偷走。於是他把普羅米修司綁在高加索山脈裡的一顆巨岩上,岩石上有隻禿鷹成天不斷地啄咬他。

    此時,埃比米修司因為對普羅米修司所遭受的懲罰感到害怕,所以就和潘朵拉成婚。某天,潘朵拉在廚櫃後發現了一個普羅米修司要埃比米修司藏起來,並絕對不能打開的密封瓶。儘管埃比米修司吩咐過潘朵拉別去碰它,但她還是打開了封印,因為宙斯要她這麼做。從瓶中飛出了一窩蜂有翅膀的骯髒生物,他們分別叫做︰老化、疾病、瘋狂、怨恨、憤怒、邪惡、災禍和飢荒…等等。這些生物邪惡地叮咬傷害潘朵拉和埃比米修司,然後又去攻擊普羅米修司的子民們(他們到一直以來都快樂、守法地生活著)並毀壞了他們所擁有的一切。然而,有一個翅膀明亮、名為希望的生物遲了其他骯髒的生物一步,沒能飛出來,因此才讓人類免於在極度的絕望中自相殘殺。
